"Mommy! Mommy! You have to come now!!"

When I heard those words, I wasn't alarmed. They weren't yelled in desperation or fear. I started going toward the voice when I heard, "Mommy! Quick!! You have to come and look at the sky! It's beautiful!!"

And she was right. It was gorgeous.

"Mommy! It's like a miracle!!"

"It is a miracle, baby. It's an everyday miracle. Thanks for calling me to the window so I could see it."

Then we went outside. The pictures don't do the moment justice at all. The colours were so vibrant. And the joy of the moment was almost overwhelming.

 You can see Alex holding her hands up to the sky, as if she was trying to embrace it. (And Zach is that blur.)  :)
